Maybe the pain isn't as under control as I thought it was. For the last few nights, I've either had trouble getting to sleep or I've been woken up by the pain. I've had the dubious pleasure of seeing 4am on each of these days, and that's not all that fun.
The pain seems to be getting a bit worse, especially on the right side. The Tramacet is still doing some good, but it isn't holding the pain back completely anymore unless I go over the toxic levels, which I'm not willing to do. I just haven't been able to get the pain completely under wraps today, and I even had to cancel a lunch because it hurt too much. As well, I'm having to take more Percocet than I should to control the bad pain in the middle of the night. These are signs that the pain is no longer well-controlled.
Fortunately, I'm seeing my family doctor tomorrow. Hopefully we can figure something out.
